The best thing that happened in 2016

Hello guys~ 
I promised to do up a post on how my new relationship started previously so here goes. Took me long enough to do so, but better late than never yea? It's surprising how my previous breakup was circulating around on forums, but thank you to the anonymous ladies in there who stood up for me. Much love! 

Time really flew past so quickly, I still remember it was 2 Christmas back when I ruined the hotel room party for everyone. There were zero pictures taken, zero cheers etc, all because I broke down when my ex's sister gave me this consoling hug after we counted down to Xmas. Then the drama came cos at that time not all of my friends at the party knew my r/s of 9 years ended pretty nastily. One by one, they came to console me as I continued to bawl away. 

Ever since after the news started to spread, I have had friends trying to match-make me with their friends/cousins/colleagues/neighbour etc lol. Among all the new friends I made during that period, I reconnected with an old friend whom I never ever thought would now be so important to me. 

 

So I knew Alvin about 7 years back when he was 18 through a mutual friend. He was also there at the Xmas party which I mentioned earlier, clueless of what happened.

A few days later, we started talking because he wanted to get me out of my agony as he went through something similar in the past and could relate to how I felt. Here's one of my fav clips he did for me at that point of time :) 

Ever since then we started talking even more. I like how he is so hardworking and how he isn't afraid to show his affection for me. All the little things he does for me and just loving me for who I am. He is very encouraging towards everything I do and always sends me texts like how he is so proud of me. One thing I picked up from him is that he never uses his phone whenever we are together and that made me do the same for him. He taught me how to be a better person and I really appreciate and cherish him for that. 

If you havent met your Mr Right, I recommend you to check out this new date-and-dine app, Bite. 

Introducing Bite :  
 I know there are tons of dating apps out there but Bite is one that encourages people to meet up over food than chatting behind the screen, because the best way to know someone is to bond over a good meal isnt it? 

The unique point about this app is you get to set a date, time and place to date even before you start talking on the app! After all, having a special connection with someone is really hard to come by and just talking to people through random dating apps won't let you know more about the person unless you guys meet up irl. 

I personally haven't been on any dating apps but this is pretty interesting considering food comes first teehee. So you get to see who has the same taste in food as you. There is even a really cool feature for you to pick how you would like to settle the bill, whether you go dutch or either one of you pays! 


For guys who are usually too shy to ask for a date, this app is for you. And for ladies who always can't make up your mind on what to eat, why not let your date decide? 

(fun fact, he is 2 years younger than I am) 

I was initially quite bothered by the age difference cause I knew I wasn't young anymore and couldn’t afford to, you know, waste time dating young boys who are still out there to play. But after 8 months of courtship, after seeing how filial he was towards his parents (coz how he treats his family is how he will treat you in future), after seeing how sincere and serious he is in this relationship, we got together. 

It was a quite a romantic night when he brought me to Sentosa to watch some lame ass light show and when the fireworks struck, he struck too hah.


During every date with Alvin, I can't wait to see what interesting places he'll bring me to and I love watching him enjoy his food when I bring him to a place he likes! Having a good meal sets you in the right mood for the entire day, and the best feeling is to step out with happy tummies, hand in hand with the one you love. 

So there you go, take a Bite at http://www.bite-official.com 
Download it on your phone and start to #bitetogether. I hope you single ladies / bachelors out there get to meet someone as genuine and true to you through the app. Take your time, dont settle for less than you deserve :)

Better Skin with ROSETTE No Additive Facial Wash #SP


'I cleanse my face no matter how tired I am or how many martini’s I’ve had that night' – Romy Frydman.

And I am definitely living by this quote. Been introduced to Rosette and added them into my daily routine since last June and I can see how my skin has changed significantly ever since. Apart from the standard regime, Cleanse - Tone - Moist, i also exfoliate at least once a week with their Natural Blend Marine Peeling Gel and masking my face whenever I can :) 
You can say that Rosette is relatively new in SG but they have been around since 1929 and that's 88 years of history. I like how they have been keeping their price really competitive despite selling over 18 million pieces of their products worldwide. From their regular face wash going at $9.90, Hello Kitty face wash at $10.90 and today I'll be introducing the No Additive wash which is retailing at $8.90. Always very glad to be able to try new products from them Rosette! 


First up, No Additive Aloe Vera Facial Wash. It's mainly made with 100% plant-derived ingredients and Aloe Vera for rich hydration. Its simple and natural ingredients for moisture skin is gentle to all skin type. It helps to keep skin healthy and supple by locking in moisture while effectively removing dead skin cells and impurities from pores.

Fun fact about Aloe Vera: It has several properties that are effective in treating a variety of skin conditions, from flaky or dry skin, cosmetic ailments, sensitive skin problems and more. 

It acts as a moisturizer by moisturising without any greasy feel. For ladies who use mineral-based make-up, this actually acts as a moisturiser and is great for the far before application to prevent drying of skin. 

It treats acne. It provides wound healing and anti inflammatory properties that reduces skin inflammation. Gibberellin in Aloe Vera acts as a growth hormone stimulating the growth of new cells which allows skin to heal quickly and naturally with minimal scarring. 

It fights aging. As Aloe Vera also contains a plethora of antioxidants that can help improve the skin's natural firmness and keep the skin hydrated. 

I knew Aloe Vera is one good natural product that is very beneficial to the skin but I never knew it was THIS powerful. I shall keep a lookout for anything Aloe Vera in future!



Next we have the No Additive Rice Bran Facial Wash made with 100% plant-derived ingredients like the previous wash however this is made with Rice Bran for smooth, dewy-fresh skin. 

Rice Bran extract is from the germ and inner husk of rice with high percentage of fatty acids, perfect moisturiser for skin. 

The main benefit of rice bran is its deep-moisturing capability due to its combination of vitamin E and fatty acids which go deep into skin to hydrate. It's very suitable for Oily skin as rice bran is light and penetrates easily and doesnt increase the oiliness of skin.

Rice bran is considered an anti-aging secret in Japan that helps to firm and tighten, maintaining hydration and lastly reduct the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with the natural vitamin E + vitamin B.



Here's me using the No Additive Aloe Vera Facial Wash look. It was refreshing and it revitalises my dull and tired looking skin. I like how it's gentle yet effectively cleanse the impurities away. I'm very much in love with these paste facial wash from Rosette, try it for yourself now from all SASA and Wastons outlets :) 


For those with sensitive skin, this two products are definitely for you as it's free of fragrances, mineral oil, preservatives, and colours! Best part is it's really affordable at $8.90 :)

Pooch Image x #TaylorZhou


Time really flies, it's been 9 years since I got my Maltese Taylor. 
Throughout all these years, Ive brought him to so many pet salons in my neighbourhood but none can be compared to Pooch Image. 
Pooch Image, located at 119 Upper East Coast Road is the only grooming place I can entrust Taylor to. I've heard of stories how amateur groomers actually hurt their dogs by accident and I'll never want that to happen to my baby. A few years back, we sent Taylor to a groomer in upper serangoon and he came back with tons of ticks on his body. That was really traumatising and we swore not to bring him to the cheap and not too legit pet salons in the neighbourhood. 

Dog owners out there staying in the East, if you've not brought your pets to Pooch Image, it's time. 
You know your pooches will be in good hands with them! 

The front of the shop channeling some ancient Chinese vibes. 

See what I meant by you can entrust your pooch to them? All these groomers are professionally certified and some of them are even award winning groomers.
 
Other than grooming services, they also carry a wide variety of products for your pets.

Here's Taylor going through their Co2 spa treatment. 
They also have micro bubble, dead sea salt and coconut spa treatment for your pooches . 


Meet Valerie. If you dont know, most of the trophies in the shop was won by her, how impressive is that!

Mad adorable puppy cut by Valerie, from a yellowish messy bun to a fluffed up little teddy bear! 



They have having a CNY promo for the month of Jan, simply quote my name for 10% off grooming services. How awesome is that? No surcharge yet additional 10% off. I've booked my slot for next week, do hurry make an appointment to avoid any disappointment!

P.S Congrats on the second outlet at Farrer Road! Please have one outlet in the North east soon :) 


Thank you Pooch's Image!

MrLens #sp


Not sure if anyone still remembers, I previously mentioned about how I have perfect eyesight yet I am a frequent wearer of contact lens. This is something my father will never understand, the things we girls do to make ourselves look better haha

Contact lenses play a huge part of many people's lives and we all know they are not particularly cheap in Singapore so I am really glad to be able to share about Mr Lens today.  

Mr Lens is a Malaysia based online retailer that has a wide range of contact lens. Though they are based in Malaysia, I am absolutely impressed by their efficiency. They are currently working together with DHL Express for deliveries to Singapore and I got my package 1 day after it's despatched from their warehouse! 

It's really pricey to purchase daily lenses from the optical shops in our local malls. It's also very troublesome having to get our eyes check whenever we visit new shops just to purchase the lenses. At times, I would still have to order them and wait a few days before I can collect it from the shop. 

Who still does this anyway? 

After being recommended to Mr Lens, I no longer have to travel all the way to this particular shophouse that I usually frequent because of their cheaper prices. I can have the luxury to stay home to order it today and it will reach me the next day.

Yes i'm not kidding when I say it only takes a day to reach from Malaysia to Singapore. It was despatched from their warehouse on the 7th and I received it at my place on the 8th. It's even more efficient than most local stores isnt it? 

Their prices are also up to 50% cheaper which is one important factor to me. 
I was initially pretty skeptical about buying lenses online but not to worry, they do have the familiar brands that we have in Singapore like FreshKon & Acuvue. I did a quick check on the manufacturer of Fresh Kon lenses and saw it's from the same SG supplier as well :) 

There are all sorts of cosmetic lenses out there in the market but I have only tried and trust a couple of brands out there. These are some of my picks that can be found on site :) 

I have been using Fresh Kon for years and I love how my eyes felt very comfortable with their lenses. It's soft and a breeze to wear and remove them even after long hours! 

After reading the good reviews on Mr Lens, I have decided to be a little more adventurous this time and try out this Fresh Look lenses that can only be found in Malaysia.  

Here's how I look wearing Fresh Look grey lenses, I didnt feel any discomfort and the lenses seems pretty natural as well. 

This Refill Express is one function that I absolutely like about the site. Since Mr Lens is all about fast delivery, affordable prices and user friendly interface, aint nobody got time to look for the products one by one every few months! Simply click on it, and your previous order will be reflected and you can simply cart them out :) 

Best price, fast delivery. What more can I ask for? 
Hop over to their site and visit to find out yourself :)

Hello Kitty x Rosette (sp)

For all fans of Hello Kitty, rejoice! 
Introducing a new collaboration between Rosette and Sanrio, the limited edition Hello Kitty Facial Wash. This has got to be the cutest cleansing product I've seen in awhile. 

It has just been launched in all SASA, Watsons and BHG ALT concept stores.



The green bottle is the Hello Kitty Uji-Matcha Kintoki Facial Wash, it's mainly made with Matcha Powder which hydrates and locks in moisture into your skin.
It also contains red bean power which gently scrubs and purifies the surface of the skin while washes away clogged impurities in pore.



Made with traditional Japanese ingredients for more beautiful silky soft skin with every wash. Pore tightening face wah formula made with Japan-grown UJI green tea and Azuki bean powder flushes out unsightly pores, leaving them clean and fresh. Smooth dense foam leaves skin feeling refreshed and baby smooth. 

Benefits of Green Tea
  • Antioxidant
  • Reduces Dark Spots on Face
  • Treats Ace and Pimples
  • Reduces Wrinkles 
  • Improves Skin Complexion
Benefits of Red Bean
  • Brightens skin
  • Anti-Aging
  • Cures Acne

I love the lather and my face feels really clean after using it. It didnt leave any residue and wasnt too drying for me as well. It has this gentle uji matcha scent that I really like.
 I have been using the previous pasta facial wash from Rosette too and I just cant seem to finish it. The fact that the retail price is $9.90 and could last me for so long, great product with great price!

You just have to squeeze 1-2cm onto palm and lather with water like any regular facial wash
It's gentle to all skin types and contains no mineral oil, no alcohol and free of parabens.



Next up, the Hello Kitty Yuzu-Hachimitsu Facial Wash. 
It's mainly made with Yuzu fruits which infused with ceramide to protect against dryness, keeping skin hydrated and moist after every wash. Also contains Honey which leaves skin feeling dewy fresh after every wash.

Like the Matcha wash, it's gentle to all skin types and contains no mineral oil, no alcohol and free of parabens.


Made with traditional Japanese ingredients for more beautiful, silky soft skin with every wash. Dryness-fighting face wash formula made with Japan-grown yuzu fruit extract and honey hydrates and smoothens chronically rough and dry skin.

Benefits of Yuzu
  • Antioxidant
  • Protection against UV Rays
  • Brighten skin
  • Reduces wrinkles 
  • Improves skin complexion

Benefits of Royal Honey
  • Acne Treatment
  • Long-lasting Hydration
  • Scar Fader

Can I just say how much I love the smell of this facial wash? It smelt exactly like my favorite Yuzu drink, like a freshly-cut Yuzu citrus. It definitely makes me look forward to washing my face daily. After one wash, my face felt hydrated and it wasnt tight nor drying. Springy, creamy foam leaves skin feeling dewy fresh and a youthful bounce. 


I wish I could easily say if I prefer the Matcha or the Yuzu facial wash because both works well for me.
So if you have acne prone or oily skin, I would recommend you to go for the green tube which is the Matcha one as it contains red bean powder that works very well for acne. While if you have dull and dry skin, you can pick the Yuzu one.
It's retailing at $10.90 which makes perfect Xmas gifts for your friends who are fans of Hello Kitty!

Well you know where to get these for ladies who are looking for an affordable yet gentle to skin facial wash :)
